Let’s talk about the April Fool’s Day joke of the century. In 1994, a popular American news broadcaster reported that companies such as Apple, Pepsi, KFC and GAP were offering appealing discounts to teenagers who would tattoo their bodies with corporate logos.
The world is full of people who can wax lyrical about why they are so #blessed and #grateful to work for themselves. And on most days, I couldn’t agree more. I love my business! Most days. Then, of course, there are those other days.
Pop quiz. What is the goal of any content? To get it seen, read, loved and shared. Duh. Now let’s agree on another thing from the get go: creating killer content takes time, perseverance and loads of gusto. It’s a long, hard road, and to be honest, one that has no final destination. In order to reap […]
Some brands grow on you like a colony of E. Coli on a room temperature steak. Others however, lose their lustre and begin to fade as time goes on. A strong brand is one that evolves and keeps up with its environment.
I dropped out of uni at the age of 22, with zero degree, zero savings and zero experience. A little spark flared up inside of me that shouted, “Let’s start a design business!”. Before the rational side of my brain had a chance to frame up its cunning rebuttal, my automatic response was, without even thinking, “YES! Great idea!”. I was starring in my own Herbal Essence commercial, cheesy smile and slow motion hair flick included.
This post was written by the lovely Mercy Wolf (meditation teacher and life coach). Did you ever see the movie Wild? It’s the true story of writer Cheryl Strayed – played by Reese Witherspoon – who hikes the 4600 km Pacific Crest Trail on the west coast of America? My idea of heaven!!
There is a framed motivational poster hanging in the reception of the dentist. It reads, ‘Being positive in a negative situation is not naive. It’s leadership.’, in what looks like Lucida Calligraphy script, a font from my primary school heyday that I can’t help but look back with deep-seeded regret and disgust.
My first thought — Juicy! No, I’m not talking about that horrid clothing label circa early 2000s when for some ungodly reason the people of LA couldn’t get enough diamontes, candy pink and fake gold bling to satiate their cravings.
You know that saying, “you can’t see the forest through for the trees”? Well, same goes for business, except it’s more like you can’t see the Friday night rosé over the metaphorical mountain of unread emails lurking in your inbox. To a degree we love it, we need to be needed and feel the rush that a […]
I’ve learnt a lot from this phrase. Be it directly or conversely, I owe a lot of my achievements to my old friend do it right the first time. In a similar way to our buddy start as you wish to finish, I believe that it is so important to set up the right foundations before launching into something of great aptitude.
Shitty days bite you in the butt when you least expect it. You know those days? The ones where you somehow manage to sprinkle salt on your cereal, you can’t find that pesky right sock, you spill your coffee all over your phone and you arrive at work only to realise it’s Saturday?
Sometimes in life, you step in dog poo. And then sometimes in life, you stumble across a 5 dollar note laying next to the dog poo. This week, I’ve had the 5 dollar note kinda week. I’ve sailed through, made it to Friday alive and felt like I’ve simultaneously got shit done, AND had a smile on my dial. Bonza.
She’s got the booty, the beau and the beb. She’s also got 50 million followers on Twitter. That’s more than McDonald’s, Nike, Coca-Cola and Donald Trump combined. Say what you will about her or her extravagant reality empire, Kim Kardashian is a powerhouse in the social media realm.
Way back in 1964, athlete Phil and his coach Bill laced up their runners, shook each other’s hands and got to building an empire known as Blue Ribbon Sports. In their first year of business, Phil and Bill sold 1300 pairs of runners for $8,000 USD.
